Wooden Blinds With Tapes – Here's What You Need To Know

We’re big fans of choice here at DotcomBlinds. Across our entire range, you’ll see that we have plenty of colours, styles and operating mechanisms. Today, however, we’re focusing on our wooden venetian blind with fabric tape option.

So, what’s the deal with tape on wooden venetian blinds?

Faux Wood and Wooden Venetian Blinds Tape

The tape on a wooden venetian blind is mainly decorative. It is a strip of fabric that runs down each side of the blind, forming part of the ladder that holds the slats.

Many people enjoy tapes on a venetian blind because it covers the little holes in the slats that the cords of the laddering run through. The ladder runs between the strips of fabric and holds the slats in place and is absolutely necessary, so it is easy to see why people choose tapes. Sunlight can sometimes creep into the room at particular times of day through these holes.

Tapes on wooden venetian blinds are mainly down to taste, although some people argue there’s added privacy benefits. To be honest, though, I doubt there are many Peeping Toms out there capable of seeing through those tiny holes in the slats, so I believe the tape is there for shading purposes, added style and a splash of colour.

So, if you like the idea of fabric tapes on a wooden venetian blind, then you’re going to love our collection. It essentially boils down to two types – matching or contrasting tape.

Matching fabric tape is discreet and matches the colour of the slats. It’s subtler but no less stylish.
